Physical Disabilities: no one is untouchable

Many people with disabilities have contributed to society. These include actors, actresses, celebrities, singers, world leaders, and many other famous people. Of course there are also millions of people worldwide who may not be famous in the sense society deems famous, but still live with, battle, and overcome their disabilities every single day of their lives. Physical disabilities relate to muscular or neurological impairments. Physical disabilities can also be the result of birth defects, disease, accidents or brain damage. No one is untouchable from physical disabilities or any other form of challenge in our lives. Be grateful for each day and the little things, because, the life as you know it could change in an instant. To find out more about society challenges for individuals living with physical disabilities we encourage you to check World of the Physically Disabled.
